Beaufort Memorial Hospital is moving its Bluffton pediatric rehabilitation center to new, more kid-friendly quarters and extending hours to offer more access to its physical, occupational and speech therapists.
HealthLink for Children will open Sept. 6 in a newly renovated space at 31 Innovation Dr. off Buckwalter Parkway. The rehab center is currently located in the hospital's Bluffton Medical Services complex at 7 Arley Way.
Following the move, that space will be occupied by Beaufort Memorial Obstetrics & Gynecology Specialists.
The new facility features a "swing room" where various types of therapeutic swings are used to help patients work on balance, core strengthening and other treatment objectives. In addition, the room has a dedicated kitchen area for feeding therapy and large open space to set up obstacle courses.
The center's new location also offers therapeutic benefits. It's within easy walking distance of a food market, hardware store and bowling alley where patients can be taken to practice real-life skills and navigation exercises.
The rehab center is now open from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. For more information on any of its services, call 843-707-8807.
